The Northern Territory's Million Dollar Fish competition has kicked off 2017 with two winners in two weeks.
Darwin locals, Benjamin Kaart and Craig “Curly” Saxelby, have started the New Year $10,000 richer each thanks to their prize catches.
Caught in Darwin River and Daly River, the winning barra brings the total of $10,000 fish caught in Season 2 of the popular competition to 8 with $80,000 in cash prizes handed out by major sponsors, CrownBet.
In Season 2 of Million Dollar Fish, 101 barramundi were tagged and released across the Territory with 100 carrying $10,000 cash prize tags. Today’s win means there are still 92 $10,000 barra lurking and the prized million dollar fish to be caught.
The Million Dollar Fish competition runs from 1 October 2016 – 28 February 2017.
